[Reportbug-maint] Bug#855380: reportbug: UI offers "Back", but doesn't allow to edit the data

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.5
Severity: normal

When entering a new bug report via "reportbug" on X11, the window has 
a nice "Back" button.

Sadly it's nearly unusable, because the inputs in "earlier" screens are 
greyed out and can't be edited any more.

To reproduce: Start a bug report, enter some summary, click "Next" and then 
"Back" - and the summary line can't be changed.
Same with priority and all the other data.

I'm fairly sure that older versions allowed that.

Thank you!
